Clippings: How do we feel about the Clippers’ Draft?

The Clippers made three picks on draft night

NBA: NBA-Draft Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The Clippers entered the night with only one draft selection, but they finished the night making three.

Overall, not having any lottery picks, I thought the Clippers made out of this draft fairly well. The pick of the night (in my opinion) was them selecting Jason Preston from Ohio in the second round.

In case you don’t know much about his story, you should definitely read more into it. Just a few years ago he was blogging about the Detroit Pistons, now he’s an LA Clipper. He proved to be a fantastic playmaker at Ohio and I think he could be a great young addition to this Clippers roster.

Another intriguing selection was BJ Boston late in the second round. This was a player SB Nation had mocked at No. 2 following last years draft, and the Clips get him at No. 51.
